Part of GENERATION - 25 years of Contemporary Art in Scotland
Glasgow based artist Cathy Wilkes (b.1966) is best known for her imaginary environments which recall inchoate visions of interiors and places of loss. Wilkes makes installations, sculpture and paintings and experiments with all kinds of media and materials, and collects treasures and ingredients, which together have made a body of work spanning 25 years. Production - or what we see in the end - is the accumulation of all of these constituent parts, equally important though, is the contemplative, sensorial experiences for which it stands.
Wilkes’ exhibition for GENERATION continues these themes, engaging with the fabric of Tramway’s gallery space.
